SOURCE: - DATE: 27th March 2012

The use of animal gall/bile as a tonic with traditional medicinal uses that claim to revitalize and lengthen people's lives has long been used in Asia. The practice is still popular and some might argue becoming fashionable. This article highlights that the use is wrong, stating that traditional uses were for medicine, using animals' bile from bears or on sick patients only not for average people. It also claims the continued use of bile can even lead to poisoning and is considered dangerous to humans.
